As in previous years, the Vienna Philharmonic has made a contribution of €100,000 from the proceeds from the Preview Performance of the New Year's Concert to the Austrian charity "Licht ins Dunkel". This donation will be utilized for six diverse charitable institutions and aid projects:
- The Catastrophe Fund of Austrian Women offers immediate aid to all Austrians, regardless of age, gender, religion or political affiliation, who through no fault of their own have fallen into a desperate situation.
- The Emergency Relief Fund of "Licht ins Dunkel" helps children and and their families who through no fault of their own have become needy and for whom social aid provided by the government is not sufficient.- The Rainbows Association, with offices in all the Austrian provinces, supports children in the wake of the separation or divorce of their parents, or the death of a very close relative. In discussion groups and vacation camps, the children receive assistancein coping with their new situation, as well as learning to express their feelings and regain a positive outlook on life.
- The St. Anna Children's Hospital receives support for its project entitled Mobile Homecare for Children with Cancer. This program assists children after they have returned home following a stay in the hospital, when they need special support or when regular visits to the hospital for treatment are too arduous.
- The Neuner-Haus project maintains three houses in Vienna, providing shelter for approximately 160 otherwise homeless inhabitants.
- Viva is an integrative children's theatre in Vienna which maintains an exciting project for children with a hearing defects. A group of deaf young people enters a dancing competition with a group of young people aho have no gearing impairment. This serves to build friendships by developing mutual understanding and overcoming the boundaries set within the two groups. The book and its choreography were composed by Evi Guenova, a successful hearing impaired dancer who discovered her profession through the children's theatre, .
Christine Tschürtz-kny, the chairwoman of "Licht ins Dunkel" was pleased once again to accept this donation from the Vienna Philharmonic: "We are very grateful for the support of the Vienna Philharmonic, who for many years have been one of our major supporters. We are very pleased that with this year's donation, we are again privileged to provide help for many needy people in Austria.
